Re: 1873 Trapdoor Carbine

The 24" barreled carbines have special stocks, almost full length. The one band is near the muzzle, there being NO band in the conventional "lower band" position. Their M1884-style rear sights are marked "XC". Your serial number is kind of low - the normal range is around 330xxx to 340xxx. A picture is available on the home page. A 24" barrel, in a normal carbine (or cutdown rifle) stock, without those special features is a bubba.
